CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - There were no shortage of rain and snow showers and a few thunderstorms Memorial Day. A large band of clouds sat over central Wyoming today. Casper had continuous light rain since the morning hours. Heavier rainfall was in southwest South Dakota and the northern Nebraska panhandle where they accumulated 1-2 inches. Several isolated thunderstorms came and went giving off a few strikes before they collapsed. Today made holiday outdoor activities difficult to plan as the weather stuck around all day. This trend is going to continue into the evening hours and for Tuesday. Some rain showers and a few thunderstorms are forecasted. Most weather will cease late Tuesday with the exception for southeast Wyoming. A large swath of rain showers and some snow showers in the mountains will come from northern Colorado over the capital city region and Nebraska panhandle Wednesday morning as the last push of weather makes it exit eastward.

This may look like a repeat of what you saw yesterday. It is very close. A large line of showers will drape across Wyoming Tuesday morning before it scatters in the afternoon but not before isolated cells start to pop up throughout the state for some more weather to stick around.(Ryan Shollenberger)

Winds were breezy today, especially in Cheyenne where the airport saw 38mph and F.E. Warren saw 36mph today. Douglas had the highest winds at 43mph. These breezy winds will taper off into tonight and change direction from the north Tuesday with lighter wind gusts around Cheyenne. Instead, breezy winds will increase Tuesday morning in the northeast to around 30mph for Worland and Gillette.

Winds will increase in speed in the northeast Tuesday morning and persist for the afternoon.
